A Sweetheart’s Surprise
One of our satisfied customers did something quite remarkable for his wife. It was a risky move that we wouldn’t have the guts to do ourselves, but James K Bakker was up to the task. You see he wanted to do something special for his lovely bride so he hatched a plan and watched it come to fruition. It goes something like this.
Mr & Mrs. Bakker live in Illinois but enjoy vacationing around Brutus in northern Michigan. This is where they have their fun. Mrs. Bakker likes to go shopping at all of the little stores in the area while Mr. Bakker goes golfing. They actually spent quite a bit of time up there and often rented hotels on their visit. But renting can sometimes be a pain calling ahead and making reservations so Mr. Bakker decided to try something daring.
He wanted to treat his wife to a big surprise so without her knowledge, he purchased property by Brutus and decided to build a cabin. He searched on the Internet for a builder in the area and found one who he thought would get the job done to his liking. His trips “Up North” now consisted of meeting with the contractor while his wife thought he was golfing. As construction got under way, his attention turned to furnishing the cabin. This is where we came in.
After careful searching, Mr. Bakker contacted us and told us of his master plan and wanted to know if we would be his rustic log furniture supplier. We gladly agreed. Our correspondence was done only via email so the phone bills wouldn’t give it away. Mr. Bakker gave us a projected date of completion and we worked toward making sure everything was ready on time.
When the time came for delivery, final communications and instructions were given so we would show up at a designated time. Timing was critical as Mr. Bakker was supposed to be golfing again and had only a specific time to be gone. We arrived at the nice little three-bedroom cabin and set the furniture up in the respective rooms. It had a loft overlooking the living room and we were sure Mrs. Bakker was going to love it. We thanked Mr. Bakker for allowing us to be a part of his surprise asked him to let us know how things turned out.
He emailed a short time later and sent us pictures of the cabin. He said that his surprise was a big hit and went over quite well. Our hats off to you Mr. Bakker. All of those missed golfing outings and careful planning paid off.
